One of the great visitor attractions in County Wexford.... Fanned by flames of Revolution in America and France, the events of 1798 in Ireland are etched forever on the annals of Irish history. Vividly re-told in an exciting interpretation of events the "Rebellion Experience" at The National 1798 Rebellion Centre is not to be missed. On your visit you will learn in gruesome detail how some 20,000 insurgents faced the might of 10,000 well-trained and well-armed Crown Forces, and learn the significance of the nearby Vinegar Hill Battlefield.

Great place to visit, one of my favourite historical centres, it is great for children as they can dress up. The short film may be a little loud and frightening for younger children, my 5 year old wanted out. Definitely recommend a visit

If you are visiting Enniscothy this is the must visit attraction. It gives the full story of the 1798 Rebellion through audiovisual exhibitions & a 4D interactive experience.It is a 10 minute walk from the Castle but is well worth the walk to find.

Presented as multimedia, very good perspective on the world and how it affected Ireland and its first attempt at Independence. The displays are meaningful and really bring the struggle in Wexford home. Only negative is that the tea shop closed October, 2016, and no plans...More

It looks like a fair bit of money went into putting this exhibition together and parts are very good, especially an interesting room setting out the different protagonists in the Rebellion as chess-pieces. Here there is a good effort at balance, showing the complexity of...More

Sorry for delay in replying. Cross the river and climb steep road towards castle. Follow signs for New Ross and in half a mile you'll see a sign to turn sharp right and you're there
